    • US + Canada (REGION)

    The United States Public Health Service (USPHS) Guideline for Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence includes 10 key recommendations regarding the identification and the treatment of tobacco users seen in all health care settings. While there is significant research from randomized clinical trials to support the impact of brief tobacco interventions, the USPHS Guideline also states that “it is imperative that new research examine the implication of effective treatments in real-world settings.” With the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the rapid adoption of meaningful use (MU) compliant software [5] for electronic health records (EHR), it should be possible to use data collected in these real-world settings to measure the health and economic impact of brief tobacco interventions.

    • Southeast Asia (REGION)

    Brief health education intervention by nurses in a busy clinical setting produced short-term effects in several key areas: raising awareness about exposure to secondhand smoke, reducing cigarette consumption, initiating quit attempts, and ultimately reducing sick children’s exposure to secondhand smoke. However, these short-term effects were not sustained at the 12-month follow-up, resulting in the need for more intensive interventions. Nurses can play key roles in providing individual counselling and advocacy of smoke-free homes in Hong Kong.
